Great to have you back, Ken (and Ron)!

Gotta say though, this Paul Mulshine comes off sounding a lot like a partisan hack... nobody likes Cory Booker, he's a big ego, he's done nothing for Newark... while Chris Christie has done a great job, has an "executive temperament" (his not infrequent public fits of temper not withstanding, apparently), has "streamlined government" while getting "lots of money out of Barack Obama" (the miserly uncle, I guess), and fought the high-tax, unfriendly-to-business attitude in the state. Those are all conservative buzzwords, and none of it (critiques of Booker or praise for Christie) was based in fact, just abstraction and anecdotes.

Really, not a great guest. I'm totally fine with partisan guests if they bill themselves that way, but this guy... well, I don't know. Maybe he's just frustrated by his mere 584 followers on Twitter.


Great!

So happy you're back!
